Alain Perrin has been named Lyon coach, replacing Gerard Houllier, who quit last week after two years in charge.

Former Portsmouth coach Perrin, 50, steered Sochaux to their first French Cup win since 1937 earlier this month.

And it is believed Perrin has signed a two-year deal, while Lyon have paid Sochaux 340,000 in compensation.

Former France and Liverpool manager Houllier, 59, had said on Friday he was leaving Lyon after leading them to two consecutive Ligue 1 titles.
